Mother/infant dyads (n=152) with substance-abusing histories were assessed for evidence of disruption of primary caregiving or neglect during the first 18 months of life. Women who were younger, were heroin users, had two or more children, had other children in foster care, and reported depressive symptoms were most likely to have had disruptive infant care patterns.
